Tour de Pirinexus September 2018

26th - 30th September 2018

Three days of incredible road biking in the Catalan Pyrenees

Join us on your bikes for a mouth-watering three days of cycling in the Catalan Pyrenees – a playground for dedicated and pro cyclists with a heritage deeply rooted in wine and world-class cuisine.

The Tour de Pirinexus is by no means your normal charity cycling challenge, but a meticulously arranged marriage of velo and viticulture. Wend your way along 300km of the region’s most beautiful back roads, linking the villages, towns and wonderful wineries of the Empordà and Girones regions – two corners of Catalonia that are relatively unknown given their gastronomic, viticultural and olive oil producing heritage.
